I believe there has been a little mix up.

17 Thoughts Every Student Has When Paying Their Loans

All summer long I've been awaiting the dreaded envelope. Crisply folded inside would be a paper that would crush my heart, soul, and dreams. This week it finally came in the mail: my college bill. Who knew a piece of paper could cause so much pain?

1. That can't be right.

Excuse me.. I believe there was a little mix up. That number has got to be wrong.

2. Did tuition costs go up?

Where does all the money go anyways?

3. I just won't get a meal plan. Who needs food?

I'll be too busy doing school work anyways...right?

4. Why does it cost so much to live on campus?

And all I'm getting is half a room and a bed?

5. This is ridiculous

There is some righteous anger boiling up in here.

6. I actually have to pay this?

I can't hold back the tears any longer.

7. Excuse me for a second while I pass out.

Is the air getting thin in here?

8. Where am I going to get this much money?

9. I think I'm gonna puke

I'm not sure I'm going to make it out of this alive.

10. Didn't I have more scholarships? I thought I had more scholarships!


11. I should have worked more hours.

Or maybe I shouldn't have eaten so much Panda Express...or bought so much yarn.

12. Do we have anything sweet to eat?

Did I see some cake in the fridge?

Don't judge me.

13. I need to call the financial aid department.

Why is this so terrifying?

14. Why do they always sound so happy?

Do you find joy in my pain?

15. I have so many loans!

I've sold my life away.

16. Why am I even going to college?

17. I'm just going to deal with this tomorrow.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
